At least, that’s what’s written in the history books.
When Niles T. Nilby, an average nobody from one of the worlds orbiting this orange giant, learns that his ancestors actually traveled here centuries ago from a strange planet called Earth, he and his friends embark on a quest across the vast and fascinating T’rin-Intel system to uncover the ancient mystery.
How did their ancestors traverse the impossible distance between the stars? Why did they eliminate almost all evidence of their true origins from history after they arrived? Why has nobody else from Earth come to check on their distant cousins?
Nilby and his friends, who include a psychic, a drunk, an elderly martial arts expert, and a teenage prodigy, must solve the mystery of Earth before they are discovered by the Agency, an ancient and ruthless assassination guild whose sole purpose is to kill anyone that learns the secret of Earth.
Each volume chronicles more locations in the T'rin-Intel system that Nilby and his friends travel to in order to unlock the mystery of Earth.
In this volume:
Newedyne - The seventh planet in the T’rin-Intel star system and home to Niles T. Nilby. It’s here where the quest to uncover the mystery of Earth begins and also where the Agency is first alerted to the fact that there are once again people trying to solve the four hundred year old puzzle.
Anolon - The fourth planet from T’rin-Intel is a humid swamp wasteland, filled with run-down people and barely-functioning equipment. Nilby and his friends must come here to unlock the next section of the Earth program, but in addition to the lethal Agents, they must also contend with a local population that doesn’t always take kindly to strangers.
The Minoshan Belt - The Minoshan Belt is an asteroid field that separates T’rin-Intel’s eighth and ninth planets. Here Nilby and his friends visit a tourist-friendly space station to uncover the next piece of the program, but things take a deadly turn when the entire station is put on lockdown....
